European Chemicals Agency Proposes More Substances of Very High Concern
Stakeholders have until October 14, 2010 to comment on the addition of the substances to the candidate list. So far all of those proposed have been added, totally nearly 40 to date. Commenters are asked to focus on hazards of the chemicals since that is the focus at this point. If companies apply for Authorization then use patterns, exposure and risk will be considered in final decision-making.
The candidate list as it currently stands can be found on ECHA's web site.
